Hocus Pocus Hags set to perform Oct. 23 in Granville

Dance will be in Hopkins Park

GRANVILLE — The Hocus Pocus Hags will perform at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23, in Hopkins Park.

The group started dancing in the Illinois Valley four years ago after seeing a video of a German Witch Dance, and decided it would be a fun activity.

The first group was about 13 ladies. In 2019, approximately 45 ladies ranging from ages 16 to 70 had joined the event.

Since its inception, the the group has grown in size, originally practicing in a garage and slowly moved to several larger locations. These ladies are the most creative when it comes to their outfits, head pieces and makeup.

Practice beings in August and new dancers are always welcome.
